PPT to model the use of the Conditional tense and provide an example for the project they will be required to submit.
The model PPT makes connections to the Galapagos and Spanish colonial architecture with visuals. I used the ppt to model the project and then asked students to create their own ppt. using the Conditional tense and a country they would like to visit. After selecting a country, doesn't have to be a Spanish speaking country, students research the internet for top ten things to do in the country of their choice. Great review for geography and cultural elements of different countries. Ties in nicely with Social Studies. Also promotes a sense of global community.
I ask them to provide ten slides plus one slide for their name and class period.Each slide for the project must have a visual and a sentence using the Conditional tense. They must use 10 different verbs (8 regular and 2 irregular) and vary the subject pronouns.
If I make the project 20 pts. then each slide is worth 2 pts. I ask them to highlight the verb in the Conditional tense for easy grading. I give points if the verb is correctly conjugated. If not, then they only get 1 pt instead of 2 pts.
I time permits, I take students to the library to work on their ppts. during class time. If not, then I assign it for HW and make it due a week later. Students are asked to email their ppts. to my school's email. If project is submitted late, they lose points for tardiness. In addition, having them email their ppts. gives me proof of submission.
On my school email, after grading each ppt I can move it to a folder. This way it will always be at my finger tips if needed for back to school or conferences.
Students can also present their projects to the class and that would be an oral assessment as well.
